Couple give $1 million to WKU

The Associated Press

        BOWLING GREEN, Ky. — A $1 million gift from former state Commerce Secretary Carroll Knicely and his wife, Eveyln, will be used to benefit leadership studies at Western Kentucky University's Institute for Economic Development, officials announced Tuesday.

        Additional space will be added to the institute using $250,000, and another $250,000 will go toward creating the Knicely Endowment to maintain the institute.

        The remaining $500,000 in contributions from the Knicelys will be used — along with $500,000 in matching funds from the state — to establish the Knicely Professorship in Leadership Studies.

        “The most important things in economic development are education and leadership,” Mr. Knicely said in a statement.

        “Tying higher education to the economic development factor enhances job opportunities for Kentuckians.”
